Two hundred local residents attended the Port Clinton High School Holiday Breakfast with the Arts on Tuesday, Dec. 13. Residents of the Port Clinton City School District, age 60 and older, enjoyed a breakfast followed by special performances of the PCHS Band, Choirs and Orchestra. Student projects were also on display as presented by art instructor Cheryl Knapp and Computer Aided Design projects prepared by students in Bobby Good’s Industrial Technology Classes.
The school district has hosted the event for 10 years and attendance grows each year. The event showcases the school’s talented students and is a way to give back to the local community.
The guests were welcomed by Patrick Adkins, superintendent of schools, and Gary Steyer, principal. Following the breakfast meal prepared by Liz Pagniano, director of food services, guests were entertained by the Port Clinton High School Choirs under the direction of Eric Watts. The orchestra, under the direction of Brian Stitak, also performed as well as the concert band directed by Rod Miller. Tune in to see the web video on www.pccsd.net
